President Trump has appointed Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi to a commission to help fight opioid abuse on a national level.

While she won’t be leading the panel, Bondi will be a member of the President’s Opioid and Drug Abuse Commission.

On a state level, Bondi has fought against pill mill clinics and prescription drug abuse.

In a statement, Florida’s Attorney General thanked the President as well as New Jersey Governor Chris Christie—who will chair the panel—for caring about what she calls “a deadly epidemic,” adding thousands of Americans die each year from drug overdoses.
